Texas El Paso (-2.5) 30 MEMPHIS 26

Over/Under Total: 58.0
05:00 PM Pacific Time Saturday, Oct-10

UTEP quarterback Trevor Vittatoe had been a star in his first two years as a starter, throwing for 58 touchdowns and just 16 interceptions in two seasons while averaging 6.8 yards per pass play.

Vittatoe started this season with 4 horrible games, but he busted out for 9.2 yppp last week with zero interceptions in the Miners' 58-41 upset win over Houston.

Vittatoe should have another good game against a horrible Memphis pass defense, but UTEP's has a horrible defense too, which should keep the struggling Tigers' offense within reach.

I'll lean slightly with UTEP.
